This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background The notice announcing the antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from the PRC was published on November 16, 1994. On May 17, May 26, and May 31, 2005, we received requests for new shipper reviews from Shandong Chengshun Farm Produce Trading Company, Ltd. (‘‘Shandong Chengshun’’); Xi’an XiongLi Foodstuff Co., Ltd. (‘‘Xian XiongLi’’); and Shenzhen Fanhui Import and Export Co., Ltd. (‘‘Fanhui’’), respectively. Fanhui certified that it grew and exported the garlic on which it based its request for a new shipper review. Shandong Chengshun and Xian XiongLi certified that they exported, but did not grow, the fresh garlic on which they based their requests for a new shipper review. Specifically, Shandong Chengshun certified that Jinxiang Chengsen Agricultural Trade Company, Ltd. (‘‘CATC’’) grew the fresh garlic it exported and Xian XiongLi certified that Jinxiang Tianshan Foodstuff Co., Ltd. (‘‘JTFC’’) grew the fresh garlic it exported. Initiation of New Shipper Reviews.

In addition, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(ii)(B), CATC and JTFC, the growers of the garlic exported by Shandong Chengshun and Xian XiongLi, respectively, provided certification that they did not export fresh garlic to the United States during the POI. Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), each of the three exporters, Shandong Chengshun, Fanhui, and Xian XiongLi, certified that, since the initiation of the investigation, they have never been affiliated with any exporter or grower who exported fresh garlic to the United States during the POI, including those not individually examined during the investigation. As required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), each of the above–mentioned companies also certified that their export activities were not controlled by the central government of the PRC. In addition to the certifications described above, the exporters submitted documentation establishing the following: (1) the date on which they first shipped fresh garlic for export to the United States and the date on which the fresh garlic was first entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption; (2) the volume of their first shipment and the volume of subsequent shipments; and (3) the date of their first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States. Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1), we are initiating three new shipper reviews for shipments of fresh garlic from the PRC: 1) grown by CATC and exported by Shandong Chengshun; 2) grown and exported by Fanhui; and 3) grown by JTFC and exported by Xian XiongLi. The POR is November 1, 2004, through April 30, 2005. See 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(B). We intend to issue preliminary results of these reviews no later than 180 days from the date of initiation, and final results of these reviews no later than 270 days from the date of initiation. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act. Because Fanhui has certified that it grew and exported the fresh garlic on which it based its request for a new shipper review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to allow, at the option of the importer, the posting of a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for each entry of fresh garlic both grown and exported by Fanhui until the completion of the new shipper reviews, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background The Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) received timely requests for administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain hot– rolled carbon steel flat products from Thailand, with respect to Sahaviriya Steel Industries Public Company Limited (‘‘SSI’’) on November 30, 2004 from both SSI and domestic producer VerDate jul<14>2003 16:03 Jul 08, 2005 Jkt 205001 Nucor Corporation. Also on November 30, 2004, the Department received a request for administrative review of the same order for SSI, Nakornthai Strip Mill Public Co., Ltd., and G Steel Public Company Limited (formerly Siam Strip Mill Public Co., Ltd.) from United States Steel Corporation. On December 27, 2004, the Department published a notice of initiation of this administrative review for the period of November 1, 2003, through October 31, 2004. See Notice of Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 69 FR 77181 (December 27, 2004). Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department shall issue preliminary results in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. In light of the complexity of analyzing SSI’s sales data of its multiple affiliates, its cost calculations and the control number reporting methodology for various products, it is not practicable to complete this review by the current deadline of August 2, 2005. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time limit for the preliminary results until November 30, 2005, which is 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results, in accordance with section 351.213 (h) of the Department’s regulations. This notice is issued and published in accordance to sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: June 30, 2005. Barbara E.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The notice announcing the antidumping duty order on fresh garlic 
from the PRC was published on November 16, 1994. On May 17, May 26, and 
May 31, 2005, we received requests for new shipper reviews from 
Shandong Chengshun Farm Produce Trading Company, Ltd. (``Shandong 
Chengshun''); Xi'an XiongLi Foodstuff Co., Ltd. (``Xian XiongLi''); and 
Shenzhen Fanhui Import and Export Co., Ltd. (``Fanhui''), respectively.
    Fanhui certified that it grew and exported the garlic on which it 
based its request for a new shipper review. Shandong Chengshun and Xian 
XiongLi certified that they exported, but did not grow, the fresh 
garlic on which they based their requests for a new shipper review. 
Specifically, Shandong Chengshun certified that Jinxiang Chengsen 
Agricultural Trade Company, Ltd. (``CATC'') grew the fresh garlic it 
exported and Xian XiongLi certified that Jinxiang Tianshan Foodstuff 
Co., Ltd. (``JTFC'') grew the fresh garlic it exported.

Initiation of New Shipper Reviews.

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(b)(2)(i), Shandong Chengshun, Fanhui, and Xian XiongLi 
certified that they did not export fresh garlic to the United States 
during the period of investigation (``POI''). In addition, pursuant to 
19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(ii)(B), CATC and JTFC, the growers of the garlic 
exported by Shandong Chengshun and Xian XiongLi, respectively, provided 
certification that they did not export fresh garlic to the United 
States during the POI. Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), each of the three exporters, 
Shandong Chengshun, Fanhui, and Xian XiongLi, certified that, since the 
initiation of the investigation, they have never been affiliated with 
any exporter or grower who exported fresh garlic to the United States 
during the POI, including those not individually examined during the 
investigation. As required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), each of the 
above-mentioned companies also certified that their export activities 
were not controlled by the central government of the PRC.
    In addition to the certifications described above, the exporters 
submitted documentation establishing the following: (1) the date on 
which they first shipped fresh garlic for export to the United States 
and the date on which the fresh garlic was first entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption; (2) the volume of their first shipment 
and the volume of subsequent shipments; and (3) the date of their first 
sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States.
    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(d)(1), we are initiating three new shipper reviews for 
shipments of fresh garlic from the PRC:
    1) grown by CATC and exported by Shandong Chengshun;
    2) grown and exported by Fanhui; and
    3) grown by JTFC and exported by Xian XiongLi.
    The POR is November 1, 2004, through April 30, 2005. See 19 CFR 
351.214(g)(1)(i)(B). We intend to issue preliminary results of these 
reviews no later than 180 days from the date of initiation, and final 
results of these reviews no later than 270 days from the date of 
initiation. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.
    Because Fanhui has certified that it grew and exported the fresh 
garlic on which it based its request for a new shipper review, we will 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to allow, at the 
option of the importer, the posting of a bond or security in lieu of a 
cash deposit for each entry of fresh garlic both grown and exported by 
Fanhui until the completion of the new shipper reviews, pursuant to 
section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act. With respect

[[Page 39734]]

to Shandong Chengshun and Xian XiongLi, they have certified that they 
exported, but did not grow, the fresh garlic on which they based their 
requests for new shipper reviews. Therefore, until completion of the 
new shipper reviews, we will instruct CBP to allow, at the option of 
the importer, the posting of a bond or security in lieu of a cash 
deposit for entries of fresh garlic grown by CATC and exported by 
Shandong Chengshun or fresh garlic grown by JTFC and exported by Xian 
XiongLi.
    Interested parties that need access to proprietary information in 
this new shipper review should submit applications for disclosure under 
administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 
351.306.
    This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i).
